Conditions that Palomar Fractional Resurfacing Treats

Palomar™ Fractional Resurfacing is a laser procedure which utilizes both an ablative and non-ablative approach. This technique pulses light energy with the use of a laser while saving healthy skin for fast collagen and tissue regeneration. Although the downtime is minimal and much less than other treatment procedures, it has the same effectiveness as most other procedures that use only ablative treatments.

The treatment can usually be performed quickly, often within one hour. In addition, it is less painful than many other procedures. Palomar™ treats many different areas of the body and a variety of conditions.

Acne Scars

This procedure treats acne scars which may develop on the face, neck, chest, shoulders and back. After the treatment, lesions will gradually fade.

Sun Damage and Pigmented Lesions

Sun damage and unwanted pigmented lesions may occur especially in areas of the face, chest and the arms. Palomar™ Fractional Resurfacing treats the sun damage with the condition usually disappearing in about two weeks from the time of the procedure.


This treatment may also help with rosacea, diminishing redness with the use of the light therapy. It is especially beneficial if cleansers and creams are utilized in combination with the treatments. The practitioner is the best one to recommend the preferred creams to apply.

Fine Lines and Wrinkles

Skin is toned with this type of procedure. In addition, because the therapy uses the process of deep layer treatments while preserving the integrity of the outer surface of the skin, a great deal of collagen and new skin tissue is formed quickly. This in turn smooths the skin and lessens fine lines and wrinkles, giving the skin a youthful appearance.

Spider Veins

Most treatments for leg veins can lead to scarring and infection. With Palomar™ Fractional Resurfacing, pulses of laser light are used for a comfortable experience. With this technique, veins dissipate and visibly fade.
